This course provides an introduction to modelling the dynamics of all types of AC generators and the related power converters to graduate engineers. It is intended for graduate engineers and PhD students, with an interest in wind power generation, having an electrical or mechanical engineering background, but who have not studied electrical machine dynamics as a part of their degree programme. In this way it will provide a basis for further, more advanced courses in the dynamics and control of wind generator systems e.g. Power Electronics in Renewable Energy Systems and Electrical Aspects of Wind Turbine Systems.

Important information concerning PhD courses
We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 5,000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately three months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
